speakon to speakon cable?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by GrooveMonkey, Jul 31, 2003.


  1. I just got a new SWR cab and it has speakon connectors. My QSC power amp has speakon too. I know for bridged use the power amp end of the cable uses 1+ and 2+ but what about the speaker cab end? I want to ensure it will be in phase with my guitarist's amp and PA.

    Thanks for your help.
     
  2. The cab should say what it is on back or in the instruction manuel. If nothing else you couls easily modify or make a cable for it by connecting the wires to the correct places, the only thing you would have to do it mark which end goes to what or it wouldn't work if the cab is wired different.

    Normally cabs are wired 1+ 2+ are positive and 1- 2- are negative.
